The Different Seychelle Pitcher Filters:
(1) The first is the regular replacement filter, this filter will remove/reduce up to 99.99% of contaminants and pollutants found in drinking water such as Chlorine, sediment and dirt; Volatile Organic Compounds (such as insecticides, herbicides and pesticides; THMs and DDT); and Dissolved Solids (Heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury, chromium, aluminum and Radon 222), fluoride. As this filter does not remove bacteria it should be used with chlorinated water.
(2) The second is the standard replacement filter this filter will remove everything the regular filter will plus bacteria. This filter can be used with any water source such as tap, river, streams and pond as it does remove bacteria.
(3) The third filter is the radiological filter this filter will remove everything the regular filter does plus radiological contaminants such as Gross Beta, Radon 222, Radium 226, Plutonium, Uranium, Strontium, Cesium 137 and Radioactive Iodine 131.
So when you are purchasing the Seychelle water filter pitcher or replacement filters make sure that it says standard, regular or radiological so you get the one you are looking for.
As there are some sellers selling the regular pitcher filter and sating that they remove bacteria and viruses you will need the standard pitcher filter to remove bacteria. None of the pitcher filters will remove viruses.
I believe that these distributors are just confused about what they remove and just do not do enough research before listing them. We just do not want you to purchase the regular filter and then use it from a water source such as a river, pond, stream or take it to countries where the water is questionable and get sick.
